was adequately protected by the system. osha says it is investigating this latest accident. in oakland, melanie woodrow. and the man who was sent to prison for running a drug trade was appealing his decision. he says he deserves a new trial because two federal agents involved in the investigation admitted to corrupt misconduct. two months after his conviction, prosecutors announced two federal agents pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars in bit coins, both sentenced to prevent. he was given a life sentence for operating. and this could be like owning a car under new rules proposed by a state lawmaker of southern california. the drone act would require drone owners to register their drones and get a tiny physical or electronic license plate for it. they would also have to get an expensive insurance policy. the money would go toward any
damage or injuries caused by the drone. state lawmakers today advanced a bill that would allow california voters to take ballot selfies and post them on social media. currently it is illegal under rules that keep voting private, although the law is really enforced. the marin county assemblyman introduced the bill, believing it could help more people vote. all right, a lot more to come, the stock market takes a deep dive, what it means for your savings and retirement. >> plus, go pro stunning investors but for all the wrong reasons. also the snow piling up in the sierra, you can get there. what it is like in the mountains now. meteorologist sandy patel will have more on the storms heading our way. and many will share the pictures of the storms with us.

i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you. on wall street, a deep dive, the dow down 100 points, the nasdaq dropping nearly 160 and the s&p 500 was off by 48, we are nearly half way through what has been a brutal january. and what does that now mean for americans and their retirement savings?
more from wall street. >> reporter: tonight, a wall street nose dive. this is the worst start of the year for stocks ever, all major markets down significantly, just look at these numbers. not only was the dow down nearly 365 points, the nasdaq down 3.4%, s&p, down 2.5%, what is dragging the markets down? oil, prices have been dropping and dropping, hanging around $30 a barrel the lowest prices since 2004. amid concerns of a slowdown in major economies like china. so what does that all mean for you? well, the average 401(k) of $92 has already lost $7 in value since the beginning of the year. and there is an old saying here on wall street, as january goes, there goes the stocks, the old saying holds true and we're now half way through january. and san mateo based camera

decided to save some money. >> i'm going to try to do it myself, but it's cold. but i'll get it, i don't care how long it takes. >> reporter: for others it was a group effort to chain up. >> those who live for the high country are trying to hold on to this winter season. >> this is the best year we have had in several years. obviously. you know, we have been in the drought up here just like you have in the valley. when it doesn't rain in the valley it doesn't snow in the mountains. >> reporter: so far it has been a great snow year for businesses who rely on this white powder and many don't seem to mind the extra snow. >> good business. >> good business? >> yeah, good business, more money. >> reporter: still, if you're traveling through the summit, slick roads are always a concern. so the chp has this advice. >> just watch your speed, like he says, it's really slick out
here. for the most part people are driving well but we have had a couple of spinouts and crashes today as a result of driving too fast. >> reporter: and it is always wise to be prepared for drives coming to and from tahoe. a huge boulder fell on the highway near sierra today, the 50-ton rock blocked the road, traffic reduced to one lane, caltrans used three pounds of dynamite to break it up before hauling it away. the road is now back to normal. last week a rock slide on highway 140 closed one of the entrances to yosemite national park, it opened again over the weekend. >> let's talk about the weather, sandy made a point, a few years ago we were used to this, and the last few years we got used to no rain. this is what we should have been used to. >> hopefully we're start to get more rain, and it is winter after all so this is what we
should be seeing but when you have el nino-enhanced storms it actually brings in more rain, that is what we're keeping our fingers crossed for. let me show you the live doppler, with the storms back up again, i have just changed the accuweather seven-day forecast i'll explain in a moment here. in the sierra, chain controls still at this hour for all roads leading up to tahoe, own though the snow showers are starting to taper, temperatures right here in the bay area in the 40s, 50s, there is definitely a little bit of christmas to the air. from our tower camera we're looking live at san francisco. and here is a look at the forecast. more rain tomorrow afternoon. another system friday evening into saturday. there is another storm system coming, going into monday, the one coming into tomorrow, one, a light storm, thursday afternoon to evening a quarter to half an inch for most areas with a light wind. it's not going to be a repeat of the wind we saw with the
incoming storm today. so here is your time line, noon tomorrow, the clouds around, north bay seeing light to moderate rain, 4:00, some of it moving into the east bay, parts of the peninsula heading towards the south bay later in the evening, 5:00 evening rush will include very wet areas across the bay area with the exception of the south bay. by 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night everybody is getting wet so it will be a rainy thursday evening, 9:00, still widespread. we had until 11:00 and then saw a bit of a break in the north bay. 4:00 a.m., friday, still lingering showers, an evening commuter, the showers taper and the sun breaks through on saturday. you get this short break, this is very important, we need the time to dry out as the next system comes in here. this one coming in tomorrow, rain totals going up, santa rosa could pick up much more, but places like san jose, a little
bit less, here is friday's system, afternoon is dry, just clouds. we head into friday night and by 5:00, most areas along the coast are seeing rain including the north bay and then at 7:00 your friday getaway could be messy as we head into the evening time period, light to moderate rain across the bay area. early morning showers on saturday, then it does not want to go away completely. few showers continuing into the latter part of your saturday morning and then a few more into the afternoon hours. sierra still under the winter weather advisory, until midnight tonight. so in case you have plans to travel up there keep it in mind, upper 30s to upper 40s, you will need to bundle up, chilly tomorrow afternoon, need to worry about the wet weather first in the north bay, if your commute takes you across the rest of the bay area it will be wet. accuweather seven-day forecast, tomorrow storms, friday evening, another one coming in on the storm impact scale. sunday is another scale, a one
on our scale there. it will be a wet day. and then martin luther king jr. we have a two coming in, that one is lingering. dan and ama, the problem with this, there is a computer model for the sunday system that is not going as wet, next week it is not going a wet. so the computer models have to duke it out. but if the weather model is right even beyond the forecast we're looking at more rain wednesday break and then thursday, friday, so we'll have to wait and see. >> thank you, sandy. well, still to come on abc 7 news at 9:00, a bay area group is asking for help for this dog, what it needs right away.
powerball, we are taking a live look over the 7-eleven in chino hills where we're told that winning powerball ticket was sold. >> yes, over $1.5 billion. and people have gathered now at this store in the area of chino hills near pomona in san bernardino county. i think they at least want to be near the machine in the store where the giant lottery was won tonight. pretty impressive, but people have gathered there just to come out and be a part of what is happening. the winning numbers in california after 19 previous drawings that ended up with no winner. >> i know, it's dark out there, maybe they're trying to say let's keep everything quiet and calm but we'll have to wait and see if the person comes forward. >> we'll have to wait and see, and ama, we'll see if there are any other winners in other states, how much of this prize gets split up if it does in fact get split up. but it will be interesting to
see if anybody in other states has the winning combination, as well. i know the lottery ticket we have, has a single number on it. we were not even close. >> yeah, the lottery officials say 12 tickets were sold in california that had five of the six numbers. so there are some winners out there. we'll just wait and see who they are. >> all right, stay with us for more. all right, well, a sick east bay dog needs your help. take a look at po, the pit bull was recently found on the streets of alameda. severely injured. the vet determined he was not hit by a car but does have nerve damage. to complete the diagnosis he needs an mri that costs more than $2,000. the alameda sheriff's office says they are looking for a home eventually. for more information you can donate at abc7news.com. and there is nothing quite like a bear hug to make you feel good. check this out. this is a kodiak bear named

iran, challenging and even humiliating america. and police have made an arrest connected with an american artist living in italy. investigators say they have an immigrant in custody, an italian news agency said that dna evidence links the suspect to the crime and there is surveillance video, the man is known to police and has been connected to the local drug scene. olsen is from florida and had had been living in italy for three years. and now, a war of words between south carolina governor nikki haley and donald trump. in her address after the state of the union address, she had words for donald trump. and there were suggestions on the frontrunner. >> reporter: president obama opened fire on donald trump. >> and that is why we need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or
religion. >> even paul ryan applauded. and trump, a big yawn, with the speech still under way he twe tweeted, speech is really boring, hard to watch. but what happened next got his attention. >> good evening. >> south carolina governor nikki haley, a rising star, who famously called for the rebel flag to come down, discussed the state of the union. >> during anxious times, it can be tempting to answer the siren call of the most angry voices, we must resist that voice. >> first time in my life i can remember the response to the state of the union not going after the president, but rather going after the frontrunner of -- in this case, her own party. >> big night last night. >> it was. >> they caught up with governor haley in south carolina. >> what is it that donald trump

steph curry, but draymond green didn't play in denver, they ended up losing for the third time this season. draymond in attendance, looking spiffy in his street close, warriors get a six-point lead in the third quarter, denver closes the lead. nuggets up ten, going up in the fourth, arthur, 94-83, seven minutes left. he went for 28, all nuggets. steph takes control late, warriors within four. look at this, from 33 feet, splash. curry goes for 38, 20 in the fourth quarter, down two. 12 seconds to go, steph, one-on-one, too much french pastry. unthinking turnover, after two denver free throws, warriors down four, catch, shoot, bang, not over yet.
they get the final shot for the win, steph open, but instead the ball goes to klay. 111-110-nuggets, the final, they hit 34 of 37 free throws, that was big. 36 and 3 now with kobe and the lakers coming to oracle, cal 12 and 5 overall but coming off two difficult losses on the road against the oregon schools over the weekend. stanford 9 and 6, they have had to deal with injuries but they play hard and actually have beaten cal three state times in this series. >> any time you play a rivalry team it's a rivalry game, that goes without question, johnny has done a tremendous job, in just how hard they play, they're one of the hardest playing teams if not the hardest in my
opinion, in our league. >> they have a good mix of veterans with ty wallace there and matthews and those guys combined with the young players. they have a good blend of talent with youth and experience. news with raffi torres completing a suspension, going on assignment with san jose and could be brought up with the sharks for the second half of the season. and finally, the coaching job he wanted. cleveland is now u jack city, the browns, the only team that offered him a job and he took it. he was interviewed for five hours, they never made an hour, jackson has said in the past he wants control over personnel on that roster and that may have been a problem with the 49ers with trent balke not wanting to give up control. jackson was lead and badly wanted another chance to be head
coach in coach. >> you know i never thought about it that way. what you do is you work, put your head down and work and everybody has aspirations, and sometimes it just doesn't work out for some. i think i've been fortunate enough to have an opportunity to do it again. and i'm looking forward to this opportunity. >> where do the niners go from here? one report indicates that mike shanahan may be the frontrunner, he was the offensive coordinator on the last team to win the super bowl. he won two super bowls for the broncos, the recent stint in washington did not end well. the old rg3 situation there. they're big shanahan supporters and that certainly does not hurt if you're looking for a job with the niners. a sad story involving ex-niner philips, found dead in his cell, officials suspect suicide. he played in 1999 for the 49ers.
